Elf Hat

from Handknit Holidays. It's done... except for a pom pom and some cords from the ear flaps. I've never made a pom pom before. I guess I'll buy one of those plastic pop pom maker circle things with the hole in them. Here is the mostly done hat:

and the huge stitches closer up:

I used Blue Sky Alpaca Bulky in polar bear and peace pink. It feels like strawberry ice cream to me. And used size 15 knit picks options needles. Nice and pointy!

I love how those big stitches look! I've been wanting to make this hat for a while now, and seeing yours makes me want to cast on right away!
